Nintendo changes stance on Wii's sunlight behaviour

updated 03:45 pm EDT, Thu October 12, 2006

Wii does react to sun?

Reversing what they said to 1UP, Nintendo tells Kikizo that direct sunlight can indeed confuse the sensor bar needed to track the Wiimote. A representative likens the problem to being unable to watch your TV in full glare. Of course, the trouble here is that the sensor bar represents a much smaller target than a TV. Some gamers may be forced to reposition displays to use the console. Worse, it doesn't seem like Nintendo could easily improve a sensor with such unique functions.
